Working with young people with learning disabilities

Passing the Baton is our dedicated youth arts programme that works with children and young people with learning disabilities!

We offer three weekly groups to children and young people with learning disabilities in Salford.

Lunchtime Drama Club

We work in partnership with Chatsworth High School to offer a weekly lunchtime drama club via Zoom. The club supports sensory learners to engage with music, drama and the arts.

If you are a student at Chatsworth High School, either attending school or currently learning from home, please email Hebe at project.diytheatre@gmail.com to find out more.
